Checking backup status

Windows Small Business Server 2003 provides backup status in two ways:

  • Server status reports in e-mail. This report is sent daily by default. After you run the Backup Configuration Wizard, backup status is included for each scheduled backup, and backup log files can be attached.
  • Manage Backup taskpad in Server Management. This taskpad provides single success or failure reporting for up to the last 10 backups. Each backup also includes a link to the corresponding log file.
    • If you use third-party backup software, the backup snap-in does not provide backup status. However, you can attach the log files generated by a third-party backup application to server status reports.
